Suffice it to say your blogger Herr Franz Lars Gaard nee Kivala - Prince of Finland has a bit of gout one might say a terminal affliction chronic at best he never seems to get ill he is rather instead ill in many different ways. Starting with his sick mind where someone turned up the color on the television set and left it there til the tv was dead in the alley smoldering after a small fire @ 3131 First Avenue South when Max was asleep on the couch, sweet Maxie almost a little bear so cute adorable beloved.
// A thousand years and no new punctuation? // Gout is a form of arthritis which focuses it'd destructive agent uric acid upon the toes ankles and feet of it's victims. Forming spikey crystals in the foot joints (like tiny needles mon ami!). The pain is truely the worse. Ask any person with gout and they will say it's terrible dreadful intense pain. As well it's unpredictable, at the very moment of stress it arrives as a hellish balm.
.....(Popcycle Quality).... Popcycle Quality a painting/sign I gave to Ms. Co-eX. LAST YEAR as she was begging for it I guess to make her kitchen look like 1960's (see jpg. above) . I've read that influence is the turn measure of immortality? Been thinking about this because we all know you can't put panic in a basket ( OOPs wrong story). I found this objet on W. Broadway in 1999, in the street fallen from someone's ancient early 1980's Continental Kit, perhaps an SUV with an exterior spare. Some how it was transformed by art magic into a fleshie pink tondo in praise of Popsicle and it's well know superior icey treats most especially
the D-R-E-A-M-S-I-C-L-E - that sublime cream pink/orange confection.
The TuckUnder Project opens Thursday - See promotional Jpg above - Dueling Sean Smuda portraits- I like Sean but it's only because he's irresistable, currently touring dungeons in France and I hear the wimmin talking about Derrida and derri- // So my beloved and I are showing some portraits a few blocks over at a friend's new garage galerie. Which is as white and gleaming as any elsewheres albeit close at hand. 5 or 6 of our portraits where we paint the same model at the same time. We have shown them together three times before best I think at Co-Exhibitions last year. But this is a small group more like a chamber piece so it maybe very good. And the smaller discrete space may enable the works to regain intimacy that is more difficult in big art halls . And I'm showing some notebook pages and painted CDs at Co-Exhibitions in a SPEEDBOAT Gallery Commemorative Exhibition. Good luck and where's my inventory ? LIke a total count- how many cds? How many pages? Come on Kate? Sell those refrigerators.
